Savory Sweet Potatoes

Posted on

These are not sweet-sweet potatoes. They’re savory. They play well with the sweetness of the potato. A nice counter-balance. I love sweet ones but sometimes a change is nice.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
